TfL’s own in-house smartphone app released an upgrade last Thursday which now adds live next bus information to the search function.
Bus users within London can now find the time of the next bus or the location of a stop near them. By tapping ‘Where to?’ and then the prominent red ‘Buses’ banner, you can see a list of nearby stops as well as the next buses within a certain radius of their current location.
You can then tap to show the full bus stop view, including a map.
Since it launched in August, the app has already been downloaded more than 54,000 times and builds on recent changes to customer information, such as the return to normal service level information displayed on TfL’s service status boards and on-line journey planner.
The app is available from here.
Customers can also use the iOS VoiceOver and Dynamic Type capabilities to use the TfL Go app, opening up more of London to customers with accessibility needs.
Ben Gammon, Head of Digital at TfL said: “These latest additions to the app will help people know in just a few short taps when their next bus is due, meaning they can better plan their journeys to avoid potential crowds and travel at the quieter times.”
TfL intends to launch an Android version of the app by the end of this year.
